5 Reading Challenges for 2023
If you’re looking to read more in 2023 but struggle with knowing what to read, why not try one of these 5 reading challenges for 2023?
I love a reading challenge to help me stay on track to my Reading Goals on Goodreads or to read more books on my bookshelves.
Here are my 5 reading challenges for 2023.
Read every book by your favourite author
Whether this is three books or thirty books. Choose your favourite author, or a favourite author if you have many and try and read all of their published works in 2023. From Julia Quinn’s regency romances to Jane Austen’s stunning classics.
Read a book from every century
I’ve started this challenge, but over a longer period of time. I’m challenging myself to read a book from every century. I’ve done quite well with the 19th to 21st century but I’ve never read a 17th novel. 2023 might be the time to fix that.
Read a book from every decade
Alternatively, if you know you prefer 19th or 20th century literature, why not try reading a book from every decade i.e. 1910s, 1920s, 1930s etc.
Read a book from every country
This is quite a long list! But if you want a long-term challenge, try reading a novel from every country. Or, alternatively, a novel from every continent or European country. Tailor this challenge as you see fit, but travel the world through literature.
Read every book in an award series
Be it the longlist or the shortlist, if there’s a book award you enjoy i.e. the Women’s Prize for Fiction or the Man Booker Prize, why not give reading the short or longlist a go. You’ll be introduced to new authors and potentially find new favourites.
